The blow-up every one has been asking since 2017 is finally in full swing. And people are complaining about it too !!
Who is complaining? This blow up is late, but we'll take it.

Russel Martin going to LA. He can finally get his ring there.

RUSSEL MARTIN TRADED
This is a terrible move. The guy was a leader in the clubhouse and an amazing catcher. Just having him on the bench would have been worth it for all the young prospects.They should have just eaten the salary for a couple of years.

There is zero proof of that. Just because he is veteran doesn't automatically make him a leader or a good mentor for younger players.

That's what coaches are for anyway. Love Martin for what he did for the team during the playoff runs but it was well pass the time to part ways.

That's a cheap payroll for what will be some of the core guys of the 2019 roster:

https://www.mlb.com/news/2019-mlb-playe ... -302605142

Blue Jays avoiding arbitration:
• RHP Joe Biagini: $900,000
• INF Brandon Drury: $1.3 million
• RHP Ken Giles: $6.3 million
• OF Randal Grichuk: $5 million
• OF Kevin Pillar: $5.8 million
• RHP Marcus Stroman: $7.4 million
• RHP Aaron Sanchez: $3.9 million
• 2B Devon Travis: $1.925 million

Remaining eligible: Ryan Tepera (Tepera's figure: $1.8 million; TOR figure: $1.525 million, per Associated Press) - likely going to a hearing.

Now, let's sign Harper or Machado with all the savings lol. Face With Tears Of Joy

Glad we didn't sign Joey B, Edwin, Price, Donaldson to massive contracts after their playoff runs. Looking forward to this rebuild with the rooks
signature removed for rule violations - no referrals allowed

Yanks are all in this year now signing Adam Ottavino... if they don't at least get in the ALDS sure to have lots of attention...

If Paxton, Tanaka and Sabathia can stay healthy, big if.

Hats off to Roy Halladay making the HOF on the first ballot. Outstanding competitor and truly class act.

Now lets hope they induct him as a Blue Jay.... i have a feeling it will be as a Philly because of the no hitter.
